We get so many great questions about designing and improving your home on Design Quickie, it would be a shame not to share. We’ll be rounding up our top 5 DQ Q’s monthly so you can put all this design advice to use yourself!

Q: What are the best neutral paint colors for a room, especially white? There are so many options!

A: There are so many great neutral options for paint color, so I totally get that it can be overwhelming! Luckily there are two really perfect neutrals out there that I find work best for most people Stonington Gray for a soft, cool light gray and Revere Pewter for a warmer “greige” color. For trim, you can never go wrong with Chantilly Lace.

Q: What is a good kid / pet-friendly rug option (especially under dining table)?

A: Flat-woven rugs are a great option for under a dining table because they’re easy to clean and make it easy for your chairs to slide in and out, without getting caught.

Q: Have any great storage ideas for small spaces?

A: Double duty furniture pieces like a dining table that acts as a desk, or storage ottomans that can be tucked under a coffee table and pulled out for company are great for small spaces!

Q: How should I decorate a two-story blank walls (foyer / entryway / staircase)?

A: There are a lot of great options for styling tall, empty walls! You add some tall mirrors or a gallery wall to this space. I’d also add a large statement chandelier to create a focal point for your entryway.

Q: How should I style my fireplace mantle?

A: One of my favorite ways to style a fireplace mantle is to hang a large mirror or statement piece of art in the center, then add taller vertical elements on either side, like a vase or candlesticks. I’d also include some shorter sculptural pieces to round out the look.

Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress
or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out
there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas?
Thank you!
